Development & Contextualisation

Back to method

Aflatoun International manages programmes that are based on three basic curricula: Aflatot, Aflatoun (including Non Formal Education) and Aflateen. These three curricula are flexible and can be adapted to local circumstances.

Aflatoun International’s curricula are all based on five core components: Personal understanding and Exploration, Rights and Responsibilities, Saving and Spending, Planning and Budgeting, Social and Financial enterprise. These elements are at the basis of all three curricula.

Aflatoun International’s three curricula are flexible and can be adapted as needed. Thanks to its open source nature and strong basis on the five elements, it is possible for partners to develop the programme that is suited to their local or national need. Partners do not need to implement all steps in the programme.

As a result, programmes based on these curricula are currently implemented in 116 countries worldwide. In all of these countries the local circumstances vary and there are specific needs. Some of the thematic fields they are used in are poverty reduction, peace building, sustainable development and resource usages, youth employment and child labour, equality of rights, juvenile inmates and incarceration, psycho-social support in (post) conflict countries.
